Greetings!
I'm about to start on my Milano Verde's engine rebuild. I'm preparing to get the engine onto the stand. Before I pull the flywheel off, do I have to mark the flywheel relative to the crank, or are the bolts spaced in such a way so that the flywheel can only go on one way? The shop manual isn't clear on that point.
Also, any good recommendations for a good place to get the heads done in the L.A. area?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks!
The engine will have 10:1 compression when it's done.
I tried to get the flywheel bolts loosened yesterday, but they're frozen. I tried over 300 lb-ft of torque to knock them loose, but they won't budge. Time for more drastic measures.

They should have some strong (red) thread locker on there, try heat to break the bond.

I did. Got the area literally smoking hot. No luck. My impact gun made no difference. I have the bolts soaking in Kroil. It's gone down into the spaces really well, so that might help.
